Nicely shading, quick drying, lightish green with some dark undertones.  Loved the color and sharing, and smoothness. I don't have any inks to compare to.

Lovely review of a unique ink, thank you!

Not keen about the color -- but I have others of the Anniversary line that I like a lot.

Thanks for the review.

I like it and the ilk such as Stipula Moss Green, Diamine Salamander, MB Jonathan Swift, etc.

This well-named ink is a favorite of mine.

 

As jandrese notes above, it's similar to Diamine Salamander.

 

Thank you for a helpful review.

Thanks all! I really like this color. Just waiting to lay hands on Wagner and then pick one of them.

Thank you for the great review, rdugar!  And thank you for the great word picture, chromantic.  :D   I was thinking I liked the color, but now I am not so sure.
